Abstract
    The greenhouse gases, concentrated in the atmosphere of our planet, should cause a global rise of relative sea level (RSL) and a rise of the RSL along the Belgian coast in particular. Long term records of continuous tidal observations, collected from 3 tide gauges, allowed the Coastal Hydrographic Service in Oostende, Belgium, to use various practical methods in order to study this phenomenon in more detail. With linear and cyclic best-fit calculations, it was evidenced that the estimates of the rise of RSLs (high water, mean sea level and low water) along the Belgian coast were different, depending on the yearly levels taken into consideration.
